Best open source/free pdf hyperlink software?

I have an eReader and pdfs work great but many would work better if they had hyperrlinks installed. I don't have the full acrobat software and spent a few hours trying to find software that could. All I found was spam and potential malware.

Any ideas

Do you want add a hyperlinked TOC to an existing .pdf file or generate a .pdf file with hyperlinks in them?

That's a good question. Probably a hyperlinked toc. I mean they have tocs but it isn't linked. This would save some time especially in largest documents

If you don't mind using a command line tool, you could add a hyper-linked toc to a .pdf file with the community edition of cpdf.
All you have to is create a text file, e.g. toc.txt, with the toc level, the chapter title and the page number. For example:

Code:
0 "Chapter 1" 5
0 "Chapter 2" 10
0 "Chapter 3" 15
and the following command:

Code:
cpdf -add-bookmarks toc.txt in.pdf -o out.pdf
For more information, see the cpdf user guide.
